Muse, Daughter of Memory, tell me of this
myr iad -m inded
Man . . . who saw the world and its cities
And came to know the thoughts and temper of mankind
Homer, The Odyssey, I, 1-3.
I cannot rest from travel; I will drink
Life to the lees; ... I am become a name
For always roaming with a hungry heart.
Much have I seen and known; cities of men
And manners, climates, councils, governments,
Myself not least, but honour'd of them all.
Tennyson, Ulysses, 6-15
